Woman dies at desk, but nobody notices
Perhaps if it hadn’t happened on a Friday, this sad tale wouldn’t have come to pass.
As Los Angeles County employee Rebecca Wells toiled on a risk analysis audit, she apparently died at her desk, but nobody noticed her body until the next day.
Co-workers described her as tireless. Always “working, working, working.” Clearly so hard that none of those cube farm co-habitants noticed she may not have been breathing when they left work.
While the Los Angeles County Coroner investigates the cause of death of the 51-year-old, one thing is clear: You may just be lucky if not noticing how hard you work is the only thing that escapes your officemates’ eyes.
